There is an empty spot where my scale sat!!!
Tuesday, May 29, 2018
Day one of no weigh in and no scale wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Yes, I noticed that spot on the floor looking pretty bare. But I was just fine with not weighing.
HOWEVER, I have not been bad yesterday or today (as in wrong eating) but I feel fat. Is that my mind making me think if I don't weigh in I've gained? Be interesting to see on Saturday won't it?
I do think weighing can be a useful tool (obviously ha). But maybe every day won't be as necessary as I thought. But what if I lost 2 lbs during the week but at weigh in. weigh the same? Then I'll never know that how I was eating worked. Or if I'm up, because of salt and weighed less the day before. I won't know if the new eating plan worked. Is this just my insecurity at not weighing today talking?
This is definitely going to be an experiment. And I do agree I should not have made the agreement with my friend when I later realized we have a Saturday weigh in with the %5 Challenges, so I can't do the full week. So as I said I'll see what I weigh in 4 days instead of 7. And then do a full week to be fair.
Reading back over this, I really sound messed up ha. If I am, I know I have plenty of company that understands my way of thinking about weighing. I did not want to do this, but now that I committed, I will see it thru. I am thinking I will learn something.
Anybody that wants to join me feel free. Sign up for the torture on my blog haha.
